Archaeology Notes

NG25NE 16.03 2723 5564.

There are nine shieling-mounds and one hut along the line of a boundary dyke on the NW slope of Cnoc a' Chrochaire; a second small hut is attached to a small enclosure about 30m to the SE. Only one of the mounds has any sign of a structure on top, although several display one or more dimples. The bank appears to pre-date several of the mounds. A second enclosure is visible at the N end of the shielings.
